IV. Totenfürsorge als Geschäftsführung ohne Auftrag? Actio funeraria und postmortaler Persönlichkeitsschutz

Franz-Stefan Meissel

Abstract

Burying the dead as management of another´s affairs. Actio funeraria and the protection of personality rights post mortem. The paper discusses the history and the function of the Roman actio funeraria. It is argued that the claim for reimbursement of the funeral of another person is historically older than the recognition of negotiorum gestio at large and can be seen as a precursor of the actio negotiorum gestorum.
